Using Social Media to Land a Job

Job hunting isn't what it used to be. Time was you read the Sunday classifieds and sent off your typed resume in the mail. Today, few jobs are advertised in the newspaper. The most and best jobs are advertised online, and job seekers are expected to have enough computer skills to be able to find those jobs and post their resume right into the employer's site or copy and paste it into an email.

Another important trend in getting employed is networking. The old saw, "It's not what you know but who you know" is more accurate than ever. The employment experts will tell you that it's essential to tap into online networking sites--called Social Media--to get hired.

On Wednesday, February 3 at 7 pm, Rick McLaughlin will present Using Social Media for Job Hunting. Rick will talk about using Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to get yourself noticed by employers or others who can connect you with employment opportunities. Come see for yourself how these tools can help you network your way into your next job. This is for new users and experienced users who can share their strategies.

Seating is limited and a reservation is strongly recommended. Register yourself by going clicking here or call 424-5021 for assistance.
